I know this is going to sound extremely silly and noobish, but I would love for you to go over the concept of drop shadows and how to do them properly, what kind of paint to use, etc, etc.

Also, great video, I love your work man, you make all this stuff look easier than it is. Haha.

Sorry I haven't been around.

I've been super busy lately.

Drop shadows are just a faint soft line outside anything that appears raised. It gives an illusion that something is causing a slight shadow. The trick is less is more. It's really easy to overdo it. Over do it and it looks dumb. You can't really under do it.

An awesome effect. :up:
I am going to have to try that myself.
